This is pretty big news from the Elysian Shadows developers, as far as i am concerned this deserves its own thread.

How's it going?

We have teased you all with big news and here it is:

We're excited to announce that we're releasing our development kit along side Elysian Shadows. We've been talking about doing this for years in the Adventures in Game Development series, and we're thrilled to officially make plans for its release. 

Aside from small miscellaneous tools around the net, up until now, developing for the Dreamcast has only been possible by investing hundreds of hours into building your own toolkit. The ESTk is a complete toolkit, with everything you need to start developing your own Dreamcast game immediately -- no programming knowledge is necessary to dive in. The ESTk is modeled after unity making it welcoming for beginners.

Yeah this is great news, and really awesome of them to do this! The Kickstarter is doing good too. They have a little ways to go yet, but 12 days still left so it should get funded.
